Nord Stream Race 2018
In June the winners of the five Baltic national sailing leagues will come together to do battle with each other in the Nord Stream Race 2018. The race starts on 24th June in Kiel, North Germany, and finishes in St.Petersburg, Russia, on 6th July. Along the way, the race will visit Copenhagen, Stockholm and Helsinki, where world famous clubs will welcome the fleet – the Royal Danish and Swedish Yacht Clubs and Helsinki Yacht Club.

The seventh season of the Nord Stream Race promises to be the most exciting. In Kiel the fleet will be part of the world's largest sailing event Kieler Woche. In Stockholm the Nord Stream Race fleet will start the inshore race together with competitors in Sweden's famous ÅF Race. In each of the stopover cities short races are to be held with results counted towards overall scoring.

Realising the basic principle of 'Connecting Baltics through Sports', each stopover includes a busy schedule of meetings and events for business people and sports fans. The inshore races courses will be set in iconic places so that fans and guests can follow the action from the shore.

Only the best teams from the national sailing leagues of Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Russia qualify for the Nord Stream Race.

Gazprom returns as the ongoing main partner of the Nord Stream Race along with Nord Stream AG. Clothing partner – Marinepool. Technical support for the regatta - SAP and SailTracks. Fleet support and maintainance – Nautor's Swan. The Nord Stream Race is organised by the St.Petersburg Yacht Club and Konzeptwerft GMBH.
